The debut film from Boots Riley, activist and front man rapper of political hip-hop band The Coup, SORRY TO BOTHER YOU is a surreal, comedic ride through an alternate universe version of Oakland California, and raises a fist against the erosion of workers’ rights and the unrelenting march of late-capitalism.

Things aren’t going great for Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield – Get Out).  Unemployed and living in a garage belonging to his Uncle Sergio (Terry Crews), Cassius’ debts are piling up. In desperation, he takes a job telemarketing for a company called RegalView, and encouraged by his co-worker Langston (Danny Glover) to use his ‘white voice’ on calls, Cassius quickly becomes a highly successful employee.  But his swift promotion up the corporate ladder puts him at odds with his artist girlfriend Detroit (Tessa Thompson – Thor Ragnarok, Little Woods), and the higher he climbs the more bizarre, disturbing and completely freaky his world becomes.

With a Gonzo performance from Armie Hammer as a sinister tech bro billionaire and the voices of David Cross, Patton Oswalt and Lily James, SORRY TO BOTHER YOU was a huge surprise hit in the U.S. and is the loud, comic, cosmic shout in the dark that cinema and the world sorely needs.
